@AwesomeX From where did you get the map?  I looked for a few hours but didnt find the map file yet. :/

Keep up your fantastic work! I like how the vehicles you've shown in the video collide and supernaturally re-right themselves OldTonguePNG_transparent.png.e4013114c97501de1099aa06ca5e6529.png.

Now the question is, will it eventually break aka take damage? 🤔

Improved handling and overall feel. Trying to replicate the feel of driving from LR1.

And messed around with kaboom capabilities.

This alone looks like a excellent base for a Racers fan game. Great work.

New larger frame and some new bricks. Along with a "Very WIP garage"

Car here is built 100% ingame. Bricks are added to the frame brick.

Completely revamped the driving physics of the karts/vehicles.

I went from using wheel colliders to my own raycast based solution. And imo it looks and feels 10x better.

 

Karts are fast and bouncy which really helps achieve that arcade feel. They also support LR1 style power-sliding which helps speed you up around tight corners.

Can support different wheel suspension heights and kart bodies, all while retaining max speeds to assure races are fair.

Started playing around with AI. As you can probably tell from the video, they're as dumb as a sack of potatoes.

 

They have a very basic "brain" that just tells em to randomly accelerate and steer, which sometimes makes them look quite intelligent, but most of the time they will drive straight into a wall.

 

AI vehicles are exactly the same as a player controlled one, and it's very easy to "take control" of a bot, if needed.

And finally a video of simply driving around with some bots in the walled area.

This honestly looks like LEGO Destruction Derby and if there was damage, would probably be incredibly fun.

Looks top notch, now add some LR1 environments, weapons and boosts and you got a LR remake :af:

I've decided to turn development towards making a little "remaster" of Lego Racers 1.

Racing around cartoony tracks shooting cannon balls at other brick built karts, pretty fun stuff.


A bunch of work lately has been UI related and thinking of how the menus should look and feel.

More work has also went into the kart/vehicle physics and feeling, there's still work to be done, but they're getting better.

Oh wow, this is fantastic! I hadn't realised you were so far along :o Well done on making it.... possibly the farthest ever achieved by a Lego game remake? :0  Keep it up if you can! :DI think we need to pull out the :light1: strobes :light2: to celebrate! All you need is the powerups and you'll basically have Lego Racers - although you've got to have that main menu music before we can truly call it Lego Racers OldTonguePNG_transparent.png.e4013114c97501de1099aa06ca5e6529.png

More work went into AI as well. They actually have a very small brain now! They're just smart enough to drive in reverse if stuck, and to follow a given course.

 


Currently they are insanely good drivers, too good, they're very difficult to pass, let alone beat in a race. Gotta make em a bit dumber.

 

No, you don't need to make them dumber; when we get our hands on it we'll invent interesting ways to beat the AI :smug: Also, when you add LR1's powerup functionality into the mix (please don't implement LR2, Stunt Rally, or Drome Racers' powerup system! :P ) the player will be able to use powerups much more strategically than the AI. So don't bother with a nerf just yet.

 

 

Keep up the truly amazing work! :light3:

If anything, it will be like Mario Kart's engine class. 50cc is basically classic LR1. Can you imagine what will happen if the AI go 100cc or 150cc? That would be great and even better to use the overpowered warp turbo boost if things go wrong.

Lots of other stuff has gotten work done, such as basic HUD elements, sounds, particles, a simple test-track "ripped from LR1" and more.

 

I also quickly added a screenshot camera last night courtesy of Garry Newman, which allows you to take some super cool screenshots ingame.

If ya wanna keep up to date further on this project, I've made a Discord server where I'll be posting development info and taking suggestions, feedback, etc.

This looks fantastic! I hope it all goes well! I'd love to see a Lego Racers game with more stuff to build with!

Looks pretty good. I think the driver could use an animation during "kaboom."
